Stub axle bolt SIII

I need one stub axle bolt which is a 7/16" BFT and no one seems to stock them. I have a complete transmission and t-case I am not going to use, any thoughts on where there might be one of these bolts used on either, before I dismantle them?

Also I am rebuilding my drum brakes and got an adjuster rebuild kit, but the cam wheel does not stick out far enough to catch the stud on the back of the shoe, anybody else have this problem?

George has the bolts. So do I but I'm wicked stingy unless you are in a total bind.

haven't had that problem with the brakes........I'd give it another try with all the parts backwards

Thanks Matt, I may have found a source right here in NY http://www.britishfasteners.com/mm5/merchant.mvc

When I was cutting off the old adjusters I noticed they were about 1/4" longer. I'll keep playing with them.

Oh yes, Brit fasteners. That's where I got the tap to fix all the broken off bolts.

Stub axle bolts are through bolts with a nut on the back. Unless you're doing a restoration, I'd just replace them 7/16-20 grade 8's.

I can send you one if you still need it. Never had any luck with the replacement adjusters, better to get new back plates and keep the adjusters lubed up. You can always weld a new cam onto the old adjuster if the snails are worn.

Let me tear my parts pin apart agin today and I'll let you know.

I wished I had noticed that before I cut all four off. I would have been better off just hitting them with PB and cleaning them up.

Found a bolt. There was bracket on the bottom of my 110 diff that supported the tie rod. I took that off a while back when I changed to larger RoverTracks tie rod. The tapped holes in the bottom of a rover third are the same as the stub axle.

Thanks for the advice Matt, if you install the spring on the inside of the backing plate instead of the outside like the original it lines up the cam with the adjustment stud.

Game back on!

yup, that's what I'd do too if I was paying any attention to what I was talking about which I think may have been drive flange bolts, but I'm not sure about anything any more.

I missed this part before. I've used the adjuster kits and not had any issues. Maybe there are different make kits?

Actually I think you both are referring to swivel ball to axle tube, if that is what your showing in the picture. I was talking about stub axle to outer swivel housing which are not through bolts. Either way I found one.

Right, I was thinking rear axle. Ok, not having a good day here. LOL

that's too funny, as it is what I thought you were talking about in the first place.....then got distracted.

I should really just put the damn computer down and go twist bolts instead of talking about them. ......makes my wallet happier!
